Non-School Uniform Day Friday 20 March

We have brought forward the date of our non-uniform day to this Friday, 20 March with the theme of Global Recycling day which occurs on 18th March. A sustainability and recycling week will be held in school from 16th to 20th March to raise awareness of recycling, and students will have assemblies with our School Captain and some of the prefects to talk more about how to recycle. Students and staff are invited to pay at least £1.20 and wear non-uniform clothes, contributions will be collected at morning registration and will be used to benefit the school’s efforts towards recycling more.

The speaker with the orange tie

Year 11 were given preparation for their GCSE Examinations yesterday thanks to motivational speaker Steve Beckles – Ebusua. Known as the ‘speaker with the orange tie’ – Steve has spent over twenty years studying, speaking and writing about being motivated and how to stay motivated. All of Year 11 had an intensive but rewarding afternoon thinking about their attitudes towards learning.

During a phenomenal session, Steve gave an insight into how the memory works, gave students an opportunity to reflect on mindset growth and also revision techniques.

He concluded the session with challenging the students with a question to ask themselves “when was the last time I did something for the first time?”
